A LOVELY CLEMENTS " HIGH SPEED" SHEFFIELD HOLLOW GROUND STRAIGHT RAZOR WITH BLACK SCALES.
This razor is in very good condition with no real signs of wear, no water marks or scratches with a very nice set of black ebony scales. Chas Clements were a Sheffield manufacturer trading between 1850 and 1875. This would make a lovely starter razor as it its a little smaller than most so is easy to move around the face.
The blade has been cleaned, polished & honed ( see below ) It has been sterilized and then coated with Fredricssons Razor Oil. Fully restored and shave ready ( see note below ).
